$ svn cp -r 1000 /trunk /module-snaps/rev1000
$ svn propedit /modules/mutha
(add line:
  /somelib /module-snaps/rev1000/foo/somelib
)
$ svn commit /modules/motha

IOW, to pin a particular revision for containment within the module, you
make a copy to somewhere, and then refer to the (pinned) copy.

That is called a "user strategy" and is Badness(tm).
